The cool, brisk mornings are a reminder that Fall is here, my favorite time of the year. In Paris, that always means a host of downtown activities that are fun for the entire family.
This week the pumpkins arrived in downtown Paris. Be sure to bring your little ones down to the Paris Main Street’s Downtown Pumpkin Patch. The Pumpkin Patch is located in the courtyard next to Paris Baby at 120 South Main Street. Your kids will have a blast picking out their own pumpkin and all proceeds benefit Paris Main Street’s Downtown Christmas Fund which helps beautify Downtown Paris during the Holiday season. The Downtown Pumpkin Patch will be open October 8 – November 3. For more information, call Cheri Bedford at 903-737-8828 or visit www.paristexas.com/main_street.
